The Summerville High School volleyball team's record dipped back to .500 after dropping a five-match decision to Patterson on Wednesday at the Summerville gym in Tuolumne.

After splitting the first four games (10-15, 15-12, 15-17, 15-9), the Bears led 14-13 in the decisive fifth game before falling 14-16 in rally scoring.

After starting the season 3-0, the Bears are just 1-4 in their last five matches with only this weekend's Gold Country Rotary Tournament at Sonora standing between them and the start of Mother Lode League play.

"Physically, we're not covering the court very well because we're not very fast, and mentally, we're not going to the right spots," Dwyer said.
